About a year ago, we went to a pottery festival in Ebetsu City (near Sapporo) and met Hisae, a potter from Noboribetsu (see link). Over the next couple months, we were able to communicate by email and telephone to get two custom bowls made for two sinks. The one above is in the 2nd floor toilet room whereas the one below is in our senmen (utility/laundry/Maiko's chill) room. As you can see, Bomber loves these custom bowls, as well!!
